The Lagos State Police Command has arrested most wanted suspected armed robber, Fatai (aka small), 23, who has been terrorising residents of Langbasa Area, Ajah, Lagos State.
Fatia was arrested by the police, with the help of some community members, when he went to attack a supermarket at Folarin Bus Stop, Ajah, on November, 29.

In a Statement by Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, he stated that:” The suspect, who confessed to being a cultist, was arrested by the police command in 2017 for a similar offence and charged to court. He was arrested with one locally made pistol, with some cartridges, which he claimed was procured from a man (name withheld) who is presently at large.

“In another development in the same vein, the command has arrested nine arsonists that set ablaze Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Secretariat on 20th October 2020 during the recent violent EndSARS protest in Lagos. The suspects included Abdulganiyu Habeeb, 30, Adetunji Seny,27, Ahmed Animashahun, 28, Alowonle Lawal,28, Taiwo Nuah, 19, and four others.

“In addition, the operatives attached to the State CID of the command have arrested the duo of Precious Chukwu, 22 and Ujunwa Offiah, 18, for conspiring with Ifesinachi Blessed, 26, of Coker area Lagos State, to stage a kidnapping case.
The duo is girlfriends to the mastermind, Ifesinachi, who is an UBER driver but presently at large.

“The fleeing suspect, Ifesinachi, has kept Ujunwa at a place and placed calls across to her family that she had been kidnapped. He pretended as a kidnapper and demanded a ransom of N30 million Naira. They eventually negotiated, with the help of his other girlfriend, Precious Chukwu, and agreed to pay him N700,000 before he “released” Ujunwa.

“The police swung into action and later discovered that it was a staged kidnapping, and there were immediately arrested. The commissioner of Police Lagos State has ordered that the feeling suspect be arrested.

“In a similar development, the command has continued its fight against cultism in the state as its operatives arrested two suspected cultists at Igbologun Division on December 6.

“The suspects are Sheriff Haruna,22, of Snake Island, a member of Eiye Confraternity and Dare Gabriel, 26, of the same address, a member of Aiye Confraternity. The two of them were engaged in a supremacy fight before they were arrested by the police. The sheriff was arrested with a locally-made pistol.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, who personally interrogated and paraded the suspects at the command Headquarter, has ordered for a thorough investigation into the cases; and that the fleeing members of the gangs be arrested for further police actions.
